    I've wanted a 41 mag for a while but I haven't bought one yet. I've got other projects going at the moment so I doubt I'll bring one home anytime soon but one day.

    Can't get .41Mag's in my part of the woods, so I shoot .44Mag, but I would really like to try'em out. Can you tell how they compare to 44Mag....???

    .41 Mag never really caught on too well. It's a shame, because its a fine caliber. But I'd never give up my 44's for one...

    When I first moved to Fl., I saw a couple of guys cleaning wild boar behind a building. We started talking & they invited me to join them. They hunted in a club & all members can only carry large caliber pistols. 41 mag was a popular one. They said that once in awhile a member gets gored, bitten, etc.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO THANKS !

    I have 44 mags too, but 41 shoots flater, and deer and pigs don't seem to notice much diferance when you hit them. Also a litle bit less recoil.

    We feral pig hunt all year in Texas. Those bad-azz pigs are running rampid and they are fun to hunt down! Just make sure you have lots of fire-power. I've seen a few that were over 300 pounds and had 5 inch tusks.

    It's getting harder and harder to find .41 reloading supplies (all reloading supplies, actually) but especially the .41. I've always wanted a S&W Model 58, but now I'm not so sure. :(

    I love me some .41! I have three a 6" M-57, a 4" M-657, and a 4" M-58. To me there is no finer caliber for North America. 100 yards no problem. Noticeably less recoil than the comparable .44's (I have two of them also). I cast my own 210 gr SWC GC's so bullets are no problem. I buy ammo and jacketed bullets occasionally so the stores will keep it in stock.

    I've been a 41 fan for twenty years. I have had several. I'm a big guy, but I just prefer the lesser recoil of the 41 over the 44. In fact, I sold all my 44s. My favorite by far is my Smith mod 58. It's just like a mod 29 except in 41 and nickle.

    That's exactly why I declined the hunting offer. Stomping around in the swamps to run the pigs out to shoot, doesn't seem like too good of an idea, to me !

    I HAD a Blackhawk 6.5" 41 mag. Used to adore that gun. Shot a lot of Buffalo Bore til I started rolling my own.

    Got a bad batch of Bluedot, and cracked the cylinder.

    13.7 gr was supposed to be 35000 psi. Instead, it tested out at 55000. No eFFin wonder it broke my gun. Alliant sent me lots of free gooodies due to that.

    I always loaded Nosler 210 jacketed.

    I LOVE my .41 mags-a Ruger Blackhawk and a Redhawk. I used to have a S&W model 57 but sold it.

    I've been seriously considering a M57 and have one question.

    Compare the recoil with that of a .357mag stainless J frame. Worse? Better?

    A model 57 with Hogue grips is a delight to shoot-much more comfortable than a J frame with full house .357 loads.
